Hey Everyone,

Please let me know if this post is in the wrong place. I've been looking at a 19992.5rs with 278k on the body and 60k on a rebuilt motor. Can anyone give me some input on how these transmissions hold up at high mileage? Also what am I looking at cost wise if the tranny needs to be swapped(labor and cost of a used transmission)

Thanks in advance!

I think any stock transmission at milage isnt gona last super long. I was able to buy a spare transmission for my 99 coupe for like 250 bucks or so from a guy who was parting out. I have it just in case something happens to mine. I think unless your getting a pretty good deal on this car you should stay away from it. Cars with that many miles will definitely have some unfortunate surprises for you. Suspension, chassis rust/rot, brake lines all stuff that goes bad that may not be worth it if your gona be taking it to a shop everytime
